Walyalup Senior Coach Justin Longmuir has said he is backing young key forward Jye Amiss to regain his goal-kicking form following his two goals and five behind against Euro-Yroke in round 10.

Amiss has kicked 14.14 for the season so far, but despite last week’s inaccuracy in front of goal, Longmuir said it was the key forward's best performance of the year.

“He’s got great confidence in his routine and his ability to kick goals,” Longmuir said.


“The last thing you want to do after one poor week in front of goal is throw everything out the window and start fresh.

“It was his best game of the year by a fair way (in terms of complete performance).

“He identified a few things that he needed to improve on, and he went out and executed it.”

For the entirety of the 2023 season, Amiss kicked 40.17.

Longmuir has previously made note of the treatment of Amiss by opposition defenders, praising the 20-year-old for his ability to adjust his game to deal with the physicality being shown towards him.

“There is opportunities in his game where he can start that physicality,” Longmuir said.

“He worked on that during the week last week.

“He got his opponent off balance a little bit more on the weekend and was able to halve a lot of contests and compete really well.

Looking towards Friday night's Sir Doug Nicholls Round clash with Collingwood, Longmuir said the Club would look to minimise Nick Daicos' impact.

“I don’t think we can stop him getting the ball, but we want to make sure he isn’t as influential as he has been,” Longmuir said.

“With a player like Nick and his ability to cover the ground and get to the right spots, you need to try and limit his influence.

“We’ve got a few plans in place.”
